The Pennsylvania game commission is asking for information on a poaching incident. An eight-point buck was discovered in a field in Taylor Township, Fulton County PA. The deer was found with all four legs tied up and shot in the head with a small-caliber rifle.
The PA Game Commission posted the following to their Facebook page.
“The Pennsylvania Game Commission is seeking information about the illegal killing of an eight-point white-tailed deer that was discovered in the early morning hours of Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019, in a field near 2711 Little Egypt Road in Harrisonville, located in Taylor Township, in Fulton County.
An investigation revealed the deer was shot in the head with a small-caliber firearm. Anyone with information related to this case is asked to contact the Game Commission’s Southcentral Region Dispatch Center at 814-643-1831. Information can also be anonymously submitted through the agency’s Operation Game Thief hotline at 1-888-PGC-8001. Thanks in advance for your help!”
The game commission confirmed to Fox News that all four of its legs had been bound together after it had been shot, likely for ease of dragging the animal out of the woods.
Hopefully, they catch the poachers and throw the book at them.
